Truth And Reality.

One does not justCrazy how simple the truth sounds.

Hard as hell some times but always well worth it.

People think at times that those of us with a lap band

have an easier go at it but they are wrong as any one

with Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) will quickly tell you.

We must pay as much attention if not more to what we

eat, how we exercise, how much we chew, the amount

of water we drink, the way we take our meds, the extra

vitamins that we need to take, and on, and on, and more.

Regardless the temptations are there and there are real.

The desire for sweets or an extra portion of food is just

as real as it is for anyone else. WE just have an extra tool.

Never forget that a tool in order to be of help must be

used or it is irrelevant.

The decisions we make have an impact and we must

be ever vigilant as we can be as weak as anyone else.

One thing that we should do is always keep our goals

and dreams ever-present because that is the only

way that the what becomes more possible.

Never stop. Keep trying and continue to work on

your goals. Weight Loss, more money, a better relationship,

anything you want is possible if you pay the price.

Keep it present, keep it real, keep it possible.

Weight loss just like most things in life

are affected by our way of thinking.

If you think that weight loss is of importance

then do not allow for your thoughts to have

so much power that you do nothing.

Weight loss is one of the most valuable

projects and activities in that, it will have

a real and direct impact in your life.

Health, longevity, energy, vitality, strength,

and for those of us with the lap band it is

to a point a matter of life and death.

If you need inspiration and are into podcasts

let me recommend one that has tremendous

value for me: Every Day is Saturday by a very

real and honest guy Sam Crawley. I listen daily

but specially when I need a little bit of inspiration.

Don’t tell him I send you there because he does

not know me just enjoy the message. He is on

iTunes if you have apple products but I listen to the

show on Stitcher since I am a Galaxy Fanatic.

Gang let’s keep on keeping on.

Figure it out.

I found this picture by accident and it made me smile.

Just to be clear it is not one of mine.

Few things make me as happy as when I see one of

my kids or someone important to me with a camera

on their hands.

My father was in love of the still image and even though

he never actually did push it further he did get joy of

taking a pic and then sharing them with anyone who

happen to be near by.

I love photography and even though I have had some

success with it I find that there is so much still that I

have to discover and learn.

Gang. We are all different creatures and the things that

inspire us are different. Please, Please look deeply within

and get after it. If you are here you have thoughts of loosing

weight as I and so many others have. But, but there is more,

more to all of us and it would be a shame for “IT” for that

thing or things that are unique for us to go to waste and be

lost because we were not willing to pay the price.

I will not ever say that it will be easy because those things

that are worth it never are easy. But it will be worth it and that

I can say to you with not a single doubt.

Keep the desire to lose the weight but look more and deeply

at you and go for it. Go make it happen.

Victories And More.

I love it when the scale shows numbers I like.

I like the extra energy.

I like to pull out clothes I had not been able

to wear in a while.

but something that others can’t see

but I feel is that peaceful feeling of

wellbeing, health, strength, and yes

a bit of extra passion.  I do not need the scale

to tell me or show me.

It is not just what we see that we

need to pay attention to. It is also

how and what we feel inside.

Gang stay focus and enjoy what you

have earned. Health, strength, stamina,

endurance, passion, and extra days.

Add beauty to your walk.

DSC_0262

When I go for my walks I try to take a camera

or my galaxy-6 which has the best camera for

a phone I have ever had.

Going for walks I have made about more than

just the exercise. A lot I do is set around me

getting my walks, and finding appropriate places

to eat but regardless; I keep low carb snacks in

my camera bag.

A lot to ensure weight loss is proper planning.

Having a plan for where to eat. Having a plan for

when there is nothing appropriate to eat.

When I know I will be gone for hours I pack snacks,

and my green juice which I make fresh on my

super-duper juicer my wife got me as a gift.

I think she got tired of the noisy old one.

It is hard to lose the weight specially when

we get to a certain age (I am 52), so I try not

to destroy my efforts by eating 1000 calories

when it took me 1.5 hours to burn 600.

Gang find a powerful why and then plan on

an amazing how when it comes to your walks

or going to the gym.

Stay focus remain successful.

Opportunities.

Is this a sunrise or a sunset?

The end or the beginning?

It is up to you, me, us.

We get at least one of this every day

and what we decide to do with it,

well it is up to us.

It is within us to decide to make it

better, worse, or pathetically the same.

So I ask you once again…

What is this???

More importantly I ask you:

What will you make of it?

Gang stay focus stay successful.

By the way this is a sunset somewhere

in the Sonoran desert in Mexico. I went

for a walk and 2 days later on my way back

I took this picture.

Commitments

DSC_0026

Someone told me once:

“You talk about always doing your walks

as if it was the easiest thing to do. It is

not always easy or practical you know.”

I took this picture on one of my walks

in Espanola, NM. The temperature was

below zero but I still went for my walk.

This does not make me better than anyone

else but it does makes me more committed

to my goals. There are times when I can not

go for my walk for a variety of reasons.

Tomorrow for example due to family

challenges I will not be able to go for my walk

and that is ok. I do not kick myself for it, and

instead I will be over careful with what I will

eat and drink.

I do not believe that we should be slaves to

our schedules but I firmly believe that we

must honor our commitments.

In the end, we can only do the best we can do.

Gang keep your goals and plans ever-present.
